Taller brides and brides with a fuller figure can choose from more detailed larger bouquets. A bouquet with a long trailing design will flatter a fuller figure as it draws the eye downwards rather than across.

Also consider your complexion and your make up choices. For instance if you have fair pale skin colour then steer away from very dark bold coloured flowers as they can make you look washed out. If you plan to use pink tones in your make up then consider using flowers complementary to this colour palette such as champagne or dusky pink.

The style of your dress will often guide your bouquet style.

A simple contemporary over arm sheath would suit an elegant columnar shaped dress with a slim silhouette whereas a larger fuller bouquet may detract from the elegant simplicity of the dress.
